The neck is a mysterious beast. It connects our head to the rest of our body. It also, on occasion, cranes to check out a beautiful slice of pizza in a nearby storefront. What can I say? It’s useful. We need to take care of it. The saying ‘protect ya neck’ didn’t exist in a vacuum, after all. On that note, there is an embarrassingly slim amount...

Getting older sucks. There are no two ways about it. The things you thought were rock solid about life, like the ability to be able to traverse solid rocks, are no longer etched in stone. Your legs start to give and you realize that your walking and running gait better resembles a lobster in mid-trot than a human being. What can be done to prevent this rapid deterioration,...

The problem with most wearable technology? They don’t make clear designations as to which sex they are intended to be worn by. Anyone can wear Google Glass. Ditto for Oculus Rift and just about every smartwatch and fitness monitor out there on store shelves. How are we to know which ones our chromosomal compliment urges us to buy?! This is a confusing time...

Underwear is great. Underwear is good. Underwear helps protect our nether-regions from scorpions and other malfeasants. Of course, even though each of us wears underwear each and every day, these garments have been auspiciously absent from the ongoing high tech revolution. Why should they be left high and dry with nary an Arduino sensor to call their friend? It doesn’t...

Timex is one of the oldest names in watches. As a matter of fact, that name is so iconic that they area always synonymous with the dang things. They’ve been making quality timepieces for as long as quality timepieces have been a thing so it is a little surprising to note that they haven’t jumped in on the smartwatch craze yet. We all know that this is...

Earrings, usually meant for ladies or your one cool guidance counselor, have been auspiciously absent from the wearable technology boom. Why not, one wonders? They are already usually made out of some kind of metal, which makes it the perfect foil for microchips and all of that jazz. Of course, this is not entirely true. Some tech artists out there have begun using the humble earring as their playground....

Walking. It’s something even the laziest among us do each and every day. We have to, at the very least, walk to and from the fridge during mammoth Netflix sessions. However, walking is frustratingly easy to do incorrectly. Too much incorrect walking and you’ll end up hobbled and afraid, cursing to the heavens your knee and back pain. How can we be sure if we are walking correctly, however?...

The world of smartwatches is a huge and varied one. However, it is a relatively new sub-section of the wearables industry and, thus, does experience its own share of growing pains. One of the biggest complaints lobbed at the smartwatch industry is that they aren’t made to look like high end watches, settling on plastic looking thingamabobbies instead. There have been some in-roads on this front....

There are some people who workout, in that they run around sometimes and go for a swim and do yoga or something. There are other people, however, who work out by attempting to lift obscene amounts of weight so they can one day turn into a musclebound super hero like all of our favorite 1980s action heroes. Most of the fitness trackers out there cater to the first...

Fitbit were one of the first people on the whole fitness tracking scene. They have since had some of their thunder stolen by every other company in the world joining the fray, and by some unfortunate incidents on their end. One of their most recent trackers, for instance, Fitbit’s Force armband suffered from a voluntary recall earlier this year when users claimed...
